I am trying to connect a MacBook Pro 2013 to an iMac 2008. The latter is a 24 inch model and has no thunderbolt, just a Mini Display Port.
Any idea how to connect the iMac to the MacBook Pro, to use as an external monitor?

This will not work since Target display Mode is a feature only available on iMacs since 2009.
To turn off.
1.Shut down iMac using the Shut down command in the apple menu (ie the normal way). 2.When the iMac is shut down. Press the power key of the MacBook to turn it off.
Hope this helps
There is no way of connecting the iMac through display port or thunderbolt since it is incompatible as stated in the comments below
